If the move from San Francisco to Marin feels dreamy but also a little remote, consider this new-construction home in Larkspur, which has modern amenities, easy proximity to the ferry, and all the hilly, watery views you'd want from life across the Golden Gate.
If the 4,000-square-foot, four-bedroom home wasn't spacious enough, its contemporary design—prioritizing an open floor plan with endless picture windows—lends itself to expansive indoor/outdoor living.
Set right against the bay with views of Mt. Tam, the house feels a world away from urban bustle, and three levels promise there's room to spread out.
The main floor contains the entertaining spaces. The living area is separated from the open kitchen by an island with waterfall-edge countertops and bar seating with a view to the custom European wood cabinets and Thermador appliances. There is also a built-in wine fridge and walk-in pantry.
A wide hallway doubles as the dining room, which may not be your jam if you're into intimacy—think of this as a party pad. Double doors off the living area open to a lovely wood-framed deck framed with recessed lighting.
Upstairs, the primary suite has its own living space and a master bathroom large enough for plush seating of its own. Getting ready for a night out will be a treat with a floating dual sink vanity and sprawling walk-in shower. There are gorgeous waterfront views here both from the inside and from the second deck.
Three additional bedrooms allow for a large family to take residence or provide flexibility for a home office or gym.
A glass-enclosed elevator connecting all floors of the home.
Asking price: $3,980,000
